Best of Art and Entertainment: Life's Pleasures

Most Entertaining 1999 Ballot Submitted by an 'Independent' Reader


Ballot submitted by Hascy Tarbox

The Independent received over 600 Best Of Readers' Poll ballots this year, but one caught our eye. Reader Hascy Tarbox's interesting responses to our questions about Colorado Springs and all it has to offer not only were insightful but livened up the tallying process. The bold pen marks offered responses like Best Restaurant To Break Up With Someone: "Why a restaurant?" and Best Bar to be Seen In: "Fuck posing." Hascy also included the little 'A' in Broadmoor, and a scribbled Tom Waits quote regarding nakedness and Filipino box springs. Most of all, we value Hascy's honesty. His closing comment to us was: "We're all engaged in a tough, daily struggle as life rolls on. You guys could be a lot better, more thorough, more accurate, more competent, but at least you're here ... no funny stuff. At least just please help tie the town together." You too, Hascy man, you too. (KS)
